If you got a boxed version then you should have got 2 disks
inside, one for 64bit & one for 32bit. Just insert the 32bit disk,
reboot and reinstall as a fresh installation, choosing the format
option when asked.

For 9 year old hardware, find all of your drivers first and load them on a flash drive so they are ready when the time arrives for installing them. You will probably see a safe mode like view (std. VGA default drivers) until you load the video driver and you will find it much easier if you already have the drivers.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
